The View From Monday - January 6, 2014

Happy 1st Monday in January! We've got a new year of reading ahead of us! I've started the year out by reading The Ascendant by Drew Chapman. It's a debut thriller that is definitely thrilling. More on that later this week. I'm also at the beginning of Cursed by Destiny (Weird Girls 3) by Cecy Robson. I really like this series and can't wait to see what happens to Celia Wird and friends in this novel. I also plan to read a number of debuts this month!

There are a lot of books out this week. You can find a printable PDF of this week's releases here.

There are 3 debuts out this week:

Phoenix Island by John Dixon;

Swords of Good Men (Valhalla Saga 1) by Snorri Kristjansson; and

Journey Into the Flame (Rising World Trilogy 1) by T. R. Williams.

From formerly featured Debut Author Challenge Authors:

Iron Night (Generation V 2) by M.L. Brennan;

The Damsel and the Daggerman (A BLUD eNovella) by Delilah S. Dawson;

Bitter Spirits (Roaring Twenties 1) by Jenn Bennett. This is the first in a new series.
